Isaiah 43:1–21

*But now thus saith the Lord athat created thee, O Jacob,

bAnd he athat formed thee, O Israel,

fpFear not: cfor I have redeemed thee,

dI have called thee by thy name; thou art mine.

eWhen thou passest through the waters, fI will be with thee;

And gthrough the rivers, they shall not overflow thee:

ehWhen thou iwalkest through the fire, hthou shalt not be iburned;

Neither shall the flame kindle upon thee.

For I am the Lord thy God,

The Holy One of Israel, jthy Saviour:

kI gave lEgypt mfor thy ransom,

lEthiopia and nSeba for thee.

Since othou wast precious in my sight,

Thou hast been honourable, and I have loved thee:

mTherefore will I give men for thee,

And people for thy ||life.

pFear not: for I am with thee:

I will bring thy seed qfrom the east,

And qgather thee from the west;

I will say to qthe north, Give up;

And to the south, Keep not back:

Bring rmy sons from far,

And rmy daughters from the ends of the earth;

Even every one sthat is called by my name:

For asI have created him for my glory,

aI have formed him; yea, uI have made him.

vBring forth the blind people that have eyes,

And the deaf that have ears.

Let all the nations be gathered together,

And let the people be assembled:

wWho among them can declare this,

And shew us former things?

Let them bring forth their witnesses, that they may be justified:

Or let them hear, and say, It is truth.

10  xYe are my witnesses, saith the Lord,

And ymy servant whom I have chosen:

That ye may know and believe me,

And understand that I am he:

zBefore me there was ||no God formed,

Neither shall there be after me.

11  aI, even I, am the Lord;

aAnd bbeside me there is no saviour.

12  I have declared, and have saved, and I have shewed,

When there was no cstrange god among you:

Therefore dye are my witnesses, saith the Lord, that eI am God.

13  Yea, efbefore the day was I am he;

And there is none that can deliver out of my hand:

I will work, and who shall glet it?

14  Thus saith the Lord, hyour redeemer, the Holy One of Israel;

For your sake I have sent to Babylon,

And have brought down all their inobles,

And the kChaldeans, whose cry is in the ships.

15  I am the Lord, your Holy One,

The creator of Israel, your King.

16  Thus saith the Lord, lwhich maketh a way in the sea,

And a path in the mighty waters;

17  mWhich bringeth forth the chariot and horse, the army and the power;

They shall lie down together, they shall not rise:

They are extinct, nthey are quenched as tow.

18  oRemember ye not the former things,

Neither consider the things of old.

19  Behold, I will do pa new thing;

Now it shall spring forth; shall ye not know it?

qI will even make a way in the wilderness,

And rrivers in sthe desert.

20  The beast of the field shall honour me,

tThe dragons and the ||owls:

Because rI give waters in the wilderness,

And rivers in sthe desert,

rTo give drink to my people, my chosen.

21  uThis people have I formed for myself;

vThey shall shew forth wmy praise.
